Adding metadata to an asset using a taxonomy

How to use predefined content in a taxonomy when adding metadata to an asset in the main FotoWeb interface.

To learn how to add metadata to assets using taxonomies in the Pro interface, see Adding metadata to assets using a taxonomy.

Adding metadata using a taxonomy

If you have been given permission to edit the metadata of assets in an archive, you can do so on the Asset Details page.

Select Edit metadata (in the top right corner) to allow editing of the fields, and then click in any field to edit it.

When you edit a field that has a taxonomy associated with it, the taxonomy shows up automatically. You can then navigate the taxonomy, expanding branches and selecting the tags you want to add to the field.

Depending on how the metadata fields have been configured, you may be limited to choosing content from the taxonomy only, or you may also be able to add a custom tag of choice to the field.

Select Save to save your changes.

Tip: If you're a taxonomy manager you can define the content that users can view and select in the taxonomy.
